We set up the business in 1994 (in the days when not even annual gas safety checks were required !). Many things have changed, particularly the amount of paperwork involved, but our basic business philosophy remains the same – to provide a high standard of service to all our clients, and to treat people with dignity and respect. The business has grown over the years to its current level, and we are both very proud of what we have achieved, but none of it would have been possible without our wonderful staff!

I have worked in the office since I was a young pup, I am great at cleaning out the bins looking for any left-over food! I am very helpful in managing the office’s stress levels - I am always here for a supportive lick/paw and like to take my salary in tummy rubs and treats. Woof!
